FileMaker is so superior in every way to Access that Microsoft gave up updating Access for use with their Office suite for the Mac, but instead ensured that FileMaker works seemlessly with both Word and Excel. (being cross-platform, FileMaker also quickly became the database of choice on PCs.)
But you don't absolutely need the latest (and therefore most expensive) version of Filemaker. Any version from FM6 upwards will work with Office, as well as on OSX. Older versions are readily available on eBay for a song.
